Synopsis

The anime is about art student Eiri Kurahashi, who works in an antique shop. One day, he sees the image of a girl in an antique glass. To his shock, she appears to be moving and living out her life before his eyes. He becomes infatuated with the girl, and one night at midnight, somehow makes contact with her. He learns her name is Cossette, and that she was an aristocrat's daughter during the 18th century.

She reveals to him that her spirit has been entrapped within the glass by her murder, which was perpetrated by her betrothed, the artist Marcelo Orlando. To set her free, she tells Eiri, a man must be willing to take upon himself punishment for the sins Marcelo committed.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is, first of all, a work that tries to be visual art, about visual art. It tries to tell what is in essence a very simple story in the first place by means of short scenes using specific visual style, and only in the second place by actual conversation and plot development that is spelled out. Thus, if, after watching the first episode you decide you really don't like the visual style used, don't bother watching the other two episodes: this series is not for you.

With regard to the plot, it would be no exaggeration to state that the same read more

There are a lot of ways to frighten people and make them feel vulnerable in a primal way, and therefore there are a lot of ways to execute horror—outright screaming and slashing, psychological mind games, the appearance of the supernatural. And somewhere, buried under all of those, is a subset of horror which I internally refer to as “weird and atmospheric.” Not very professional, I know, but it's the sort of bin into which I throw things like Le Portrait de Petit Cossette, a three episode OVA that is just plain strange more so than anything else. Of course, you could also call it a read more

First of all, I must say the stories of these two anime are very different. But if you're looking for an intriguing anime that gives you the same feeling you have when you watch Jigoku Shoujo (and vice-versa), Le Portrait de Petite Cossette is a good option(and vice-versa).

Petit Cossette, is a little bit more bloody. And naturally, Jigoku Shoujo, could afford to move on the storyline more slowly since it has more episodes, while Petit Cossette has only around 120 minutes. But both series build the mystery at a similar pace, keeping you interesting and wondering what's going to happen next.
Same feel. Lots of gore, powerful music, lolis, and a complicated but not fully explored plot.
